As she’s cursing herself for forgetting the light Tony walks in and offers to let her borrow his. Michelle and Tony walk in, demanding to know why she is there. Blake tells them that she has a good explanation.

At the farmhouse Tammy returns with JB and is trying to convince him that he doesn’t want to come in. JB assures her that the place looks empty and Tammy thanks JB for the drive home and walk by the lake.

Ruth is in her office and is on the phone with Bill wanting to know where Olivia is, she also informs Bill that she had to make things up for Phillip in regards to the ‘Harley Cooper’ project. Inside Phillip’s office Phillip is checking up on the progress with Olivia. The man he spoke with last week has returned to his office and is informing Phillip that Olivia is sharing a Danish jail cell with half of the working girls from Copenhagen. Phillip laughs and makes the remark that Olivia will feel at home. Phillip is handed the documents to clear up the misunderstanding with Denmark officials and Phillip says that he may need to sit on them for a while.

At the police station Dinah asks to speak with Jeffery, and though the cops she’s with refuses to let her Jeffery comes into the station and tells the police officer its ok. Dinah tells Jeffery that she wants her freedom, or she will talk and he will go down with her (Dinah). Edmund rushes into the police station, looking for Cassie who isn’t there yet.

Blake tells Michelle that she’s at the lighthouse because she’s now a real estate agent. Michelle tells Blake she’s not getting rid of the lighthouse anytime soon. Blake then tries lying to Michelle about seeing some of the contractors doing window estimates and noticing that one of them was a fling she had while she and Ross broke up a few years earlier. Michelle tricks Blake into admitting that the ‘hot guy’ is a blue eyed guy named Jake who doesn’t exist. Michelle demands to know the truth from Blake and tells Blake that she’s sick of people breaking in to ransack the place.

Ruth has a run in with a young man, Derrick that she saw last week. Ruth gets him to do some grunt work to get him off of her back.

JB gets beer and tells Tammy that they will help with the hangover. He puts the beer up against Tammy’s forehead and Tammy looks surprised. Tammy lets JB know that her mother will be angry if she walks in and finds out about the beer or JB. JB offers to head out the back door if he hears a car and offers to stay and talk with Tammy. Tammy decides to show JB where the back door is in case Cassie comes home. As the two (Tammy & JB) get off the couch we see Joey approaching the front door of the farmhouse, as he’s looking in the windows he gets a phone call from Ruth who tells him to come to Spaulding Enterprises ASAP because his scholarship depends on it. Ruth lets Lizzie know that she did as asked and Lizzie tells Ruth not to mention a word of it to her father. Phillip comes out of his office ushering the man who set Olivia up out and asks Ruth to come in so he can dictate a letter to the board. As they are walking in to the office Ruth hands a folder to Phillip with the information on Harley Cooper in it. Ruth tells Phillip that she wishes there was more dirt, but that the project is a work in progress. Phillip pops some pills and tells Ruth that he thinks she may be the assistant he has been looking for. Phillip dictates a letter to the board about a proxy vote and lets them know that the votes from Olivia Spencer Spaulding will not be counted as she is being held in Denmark for an indefinite amount of time. Ruth lets Phillip know she will type up a draft and get it back to him ASAP. Ruth offers to help Phillip out in regards to getting Olivia out of jail; Phillip lets Ruth know it is simply a case of mistaken identity and he has the papers all in order. Ruth offers to run the papers over to the correct people and Phillip tells her he has other jobs for her that are more pressing. Joey walks into Spaulding and Lizzie catches him at the elevator. Lizzie tells Joey that she hopes he’s calmed down a bit. Phillip, hearing the ruckus comes out into the hallway to see what is going on. Joey tells Phillip he has something to tell him about his daughter, and Phillip questions why Joey is even in the building after hours. Meanwhile inside Phillip’s office Ruth is trying to break into Phillip’s briefcase.

Cassie is inside the interrogation room and Jeffery brings Dinah inside. Cassie tells Dinah that she has to hear what she (Cassie) has to say.

Cassie tells Dinah that is she sends her to jail that its not going to help anyone. Cassie tells Jeffery to let Dinah go because she wants it all over. Dinah thinks that Cassie is joking that she’s not going to testify. Cassie tells everyone that if Dinah goes on trial there will be appeal after appeal and one day Dinah might be free, but she will be free with more hatred of Cassie and her family than she does right now. Cassie deems the shooting of Hart was an accident.

Michelle tells Blake to just call next time. Blake questions Michelle about finding old stuff around. Michelle is very vague about what she found. Blake leaves and Tony asks Michelle why she didn’t tell Blake about the coin she (Michelle) found. Michelle tells Tony that she thinks it’s a good luck charm and shows it to him. This time it’s around her neck on a chain. Out in the stairwell, Blake holds a coin she found in the lighthouse in her palm and tells herself that she made a promise to her father to take care of some things before he gets to Springfield.

JB tells Tammy that her problem is that she thinks too much. JB offers to take off with her and Tammy tells him no. JB picks on her for thinking too much and goes to get another beer.

He then grabs a vial of the drugs he had sold Lizzie and holds it.

Ruth is still trying to break into Phillip’s briefcase. Phillip asks Lizzie and Joey to explain what happened. Lizzie explains to her father that she loves Joey and just wanted to be with him. Phillip turns to Joey and asks him what happened. Joey tells him that he can’t remember and Phillip warns him that what he’s saying happened are serious accusations. Phillip tells Joey that he doesn’t think Joey is mad because of what happened but because he thinks he lost Tammy because of it. Phillip tells Joey that he needs to not talk about what happened and that perhaps he should head east to school. Phillip offers to make phone calls to all the top schools in Boston, and when Joey protests and tells Phillip that Lizzie should be shipped off to school Phillip reminds Joey that his mother’s mortgage is managed by a bank that Spaulding Enterprises owns. Phillip tells Joey that if he doesn’t leave town and agree to never say another bad word about Lizzie that he will make Joey’s mothers life a living hell. The whole while Lizzie is screaming that this is not how it was supposed to happen. Phillip tells Joey to pack his bags and that he will have his assistant book him a flight.
